The dictionary focuses on the essential information that elementary and pre-intermediate learners need most. It identifies the 2,000 most important words to know, taken from the Oxford 3000™*. The definitions are written using these 2,000 words which means the explanations are easy to understand. They are listed in the back of the dictionary to use as a revision checklist or as a basis for a vocabulary syllabus.Corpus-based examples show how words work in practice, helping students use words correctly. Special Notes provide extra help with grammar, pronunciation and spelling.The 500 blue Notes help students with culture, grammar, pronunciation, speaking, spelling, and word building. Which Word? Notes help with easily confused words and common errors (e.g. accept/except, among/between). The 400 photos, cartoons, and drawings make difficult words easy to understand.Students preparing for the Cambridge ESOL Movers, Starters, Flyers or KET exams will find plenty of practice in the 16 Study pages. The Study pages also focus on prepositions of place and of movement, numbers, time and dates, telephoning, words that go together, education, health, writing letters and emails, and filling in forms.The words, phrases and meanings include the equivalent word in American English (cash machine/ATM, aubergine/eggplant, wallet/billfold).The dictionary also includes 13,000 corpus-based examples and over 1,000 synonyms and opposites.* Oxford 3000™. These words are the most important because they occur frequently in the language, are widely used (in science, arts, spoken English, etc), or because there are no alternative words to express the same meaning (for example, vegetables, hungry, aunt). Oxford 3000™ keywords are used in the Oxford Wordpower Dictionary, 3rd edition, and the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, 7th and 8th editions.
